Summertime Adventures on Two Wheels

Who says summer fun is just for kids on hiatus from school? Members of the Williamsburg Area Bicyclists (WAB) spent the warmer months exploring our great country- and beyond- from two wheels. To kick off the summer, a large gathering of WAB members went bike touring while immersing themselves in the Dutch culture of the Netherlands. Some stayed local and rode along the Virginia Creeper Trail or participated in the 30th anniversary of the annual Bike Virginia Tour. Others traveled the Great Allegheny Passage, which crosses through multiple states. Couples rode tandem bikes in Maine, New Hampshire, and in the Great Ohio Bicycling Adventure. One member even rode a solo ride of nearly 1,500 miles along several popular trails, including the Erie Canal Trail. All in all this summer was filled with many adventures and memory-makers for the members of Williamsburg Area Bicyclists.
